Mr. Nomadreader and I bought a house? Well everything came through, we closed, and moved. FOR THE LAST TIME. EVER. (That tiny red triangle in the top right corner says SOLD!) I've moved six times in the six years I've been blogging. I've moved nine times since I graduated from college (just over ten years ago.) Sheesh. And as much as I love our house, and still find myself wandering from room to room marveling that it's ours, part of me is ready to resume 'normal' reading, blogging, Tweeting and blog reading. Hello, lazy days of summer, I'm so glad you're here! Once the last of the major things to do around the house are tied up this week (just in time for our first out-of-town visitors and our housewarming party), I'm looking forward to a summer full of Mondays off. Yes, Mr. Nomadreader and I will finally have a day off together each week (at least for two and a half months!) House pictures will come when more is put away. Sneak peak: we're arranging our books by color, and I cannot wait!
While I haven't been blogging or even reading other blogs, I have been spending thinking about why I blog and what I want out of my blog. I haven't reached many conclusions, but for now I want to once again make blogging a priority in my life, just as I want to make reading a priority. I always come back around to what I love most about blogging about books: I'm an extrovert who loves to read, so having an outlet to share my thoughts on books with other readers matters to me. I also want to return to blogging more about other entertainment media, specifically film and television. Look for more of those posts in the future.
I'm spending today unpacking, finishing up Michael Harvey's fourth Michael Kelly novel, We All Fall Down, and binge-watching Grey's Anatomy (I'm in the middle of season 2.) I find alternating house chores with relaxing makes me accomplish far more (or at least not resent chores interrupting my lazy Sunday nearly as much!)
I hope this week will be a return to my normal posting schedule and help me get caught up on reviews. Now tell me: what have you been up to?
